Summer in Brussels: The Best Locations to Visit

Enjoy a refreshing drink above the rooftops of Brussels in the summer or do what the locals in the Belgian capital do and relax in one of the magnificent parks. We are going to show you the top highlights that you absolutely mustn’t miss out on during your next summer city break to Brussels.

Time for a Little Break

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city for an hour or two at the picturesque Parc d’Egmont, which is an oasis of tranquility despite its central location. The park benches are the perfect place to take a breather. The café and restaurant La Fabrique en Ville offers excellent cuisine. On the terrace, you can enjoy the sensation of the summer sunshine on your face and treat yourself to a fantastic brunch.

Party and Chill under Open Skies

From June, Brussels transforms into a mecca for party animals. They celebrate summer festivals and food festivals, and pop-up bars spring up from the ground. At the “Coucou Brussels” info stands, loungers and cool drinks await you. There is also musical accompaniment.
Additionally, you shouldn’t miss out on the summer events at “La Terrasse 02”—palm trees and pool included.

Vacation Vibes at the Edge of the City

A trip out to the Bois de la Cambre forest and its idyllic park will feel like a weekend getaway. For the locals, the forest serves as a place of relaxation—the perfect place for jogging, cycling, and picnics. A small island forms the heart of the park and is crowned by the Chalet Robinson. From Wednesday to Sunday, you can cross the lake by ferry and enjoy fine dining at the Chalet restaurant.

Sunset over the Rooftops of the City

If you are on a jaunt through Brussels and look up to the sky, you will notice the great number of roof terraces in the city center. Some of them are part of hotels but are accessible to non-hotel guests. For instance, the Secret Rooftop Bar at the Warwick Hotel. Until mid-September, you can sip on cocktails while marveling at the Grand Palace from above.
